Call for Chapters: Critical Insights Volume on Nabokov's Lolita
Critical Insights is a multi-volume series that offers original introductory
criticism on key authors, works, and themes in literature that are
addressed in core reading lists at the undergraduate level. The quality of
scholarship and the level of analysis for this series are designed toprovide
the best and most well rounded overviews of the authors, works, and themes
covered. Each volume is peer edited by a scholar in the field. The result
is a collection of authoritative, in-depth scholarship suitable for students
and teachers alike. All chapters are written as original material and
include an MLA-styled “Works Cited” section and bibliography. Published and
distributed by Salem Press, new volumes in the series are solicited and edited
by Grey House Publishing. The publisher owns the copyright of all submissions
to its volumes.

The editor of a new Critical Insights volume on Nabokov's *Lolita*
seeks contributors
to write chapters on any topic on the novel. Submissions on film
adaptations of *Lolita*, reception of *Lolita* (e.g., from its time to the
present, in the West, worldwide), and on narrative technique and authorial
intent in *Lolita* are especially of interest.

Final drafts of chapters of approximately 4,000-5,000 words will be due on or
around August 15, 2015.

Contributors will be compensated upon the submission of completed chapters.

To contribute, please send a proposed title and a short abstract (250 words or
less) of the proposed chapter along with a short bio (150 words) by April
1, 2015 off-list to Rachel Stauffer at rachelstauffer@gmail.com. Please
also feel free to send any questions.
